On the Mend
Little Pup had knee surgery on Tuesday. She was out of it and in a great deal of pain when I picked her up that afternoon. I made her a nest in this blanket (it's one I made) and there she stayed. She had a pain patch on her neck and two other types of pain meds that I've been administering, as well as an antibiotic. She was shaved in three spots for the surgery, the pain patch, and the IV. She looks pretty pathetic. She's starting to be a bit more alert now. She's jumping on and off the couch and climbing stairs, using her three good legs to maneuver. I had to take her in this morning to get three new staples because as the swelling went down they became too loose. Doc says she's doing well and had me bump up staple removal four days. I can't wait until she's all healed and feeling better!
